MQii Reaches Milestone

11/28/2018 - The Academy continues to work with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to advance electronic quality measures as part of the multi-year Malnutrition Quality Improvement Initiative and continues working with partners to collect data to support the measures.

To obtain data and feedback from a variety of demographics - including size, geographic distribution and acute-care types of facilities - a strategic goal was set to enroll 250 sites in the Learning Collaborative. With the recent commitment by Catholic Health Initiatives for 73 hospitals to participate, 256 facilities are now confirmed.

This is an important milestone in the initiative that raises awareness of the clinical relevance of malnutrition identification and treatment across the U.S.
